Annual Meeting & Leadership Training
"Post-election opportunities and challenges for single payer"
Washington, D.C. | November 18-19, 2016
PNHP's 2016 annual meeting comes at an exciting time for single payer. What will the 2016 election mean for advocates on the national and state levels? How can we build on the opportunities, and meet the challenges, that have come about as a result of single payer's increased national profile? November 2016 will be an ideal time to meet with colleagues, plan strategies, and build skills as we continue to push for meaningful health care reform.
